    Summary

    “We can’t keep doing this.”

    John doesn’t open his eyes when he murmurs this into the darkness of Sherlock’s room. He feels the detective’s eyes on him, but he doesn’t move.

    Then Sherlock’s voice comes, low and almost sad. “I know.” A beat of silence. There’s a rustle of noise, and suddenly John is left alone in Sherlock’s bed.

    Summary

    Things are strained between Sherlock and John, following an unplanned confession a few months back.  When they find themselves abroad for a case—in Northern California, no less—they struggle to navigate their broken friendship when emotions run high and things get a bit too real.

    “I’m sorry,” He says, breaking the silence that has stretched out between us. An apology, even. It’s more than I’d expected to get. “Do you think—can we go back? Can you do that?” I don’t know. I’d like to think so. I miss him fiercely, and I want him by my side—but nothing has changed, for me. I still feel the same.

    Summary

    I don’t notice him until he’s sliding into the seat across from me.

    John Watson.

    I promised myself I wouldn’t do this. Should I ever see him again. But John Watson is sitting five feet away from me with a shy smile that’s so familiar and my mind goes completely blank. It’s the same smile that made me want to put my mouth on his skin.

    Summary

    It had been weeks at first. When the first month came and went, he had still been in denial. In shock. When the second month came, it had begun to sink in: alone. He was alone now. Alone. At the third month, it was anger. And now, well into the fifth month since John had given him his last message through Molly, all that was left was a numb… nothing.

    'Anyone but you'

    Sherlock still remembers his phone number by heart -although he is sure John changed it. Like his email. His address. His life. Mycroft tried to reason with him at first, but when John threatened to disappear entirely lest the Holmeses left him alone, Sherlock had asked him to stop. What Sherlock dreads is how these details that do not matter anymore remain, when the details of John’s face seem to be ebbing away from his mind’s grasp. It had happened before, in his two-year-long hiatus. But now, no return would bring them together again, for the memory to be renewed.

    -Until it would...

    Summary

    Green.

    The word green was used to convey a great many things. Illness. Envy. Inexperience.

    Standing there amidst Janine's chattering bridesmaids, watching Sherlock furrow his brow and study fabric swatches, watching him smile and simper and flirt, John thought it a remarkably apt colour choice. Because he felt quite sick to his stomach, he feared the source of said sickness might very well be jealousy, and he had absolutely no idea at all what to do about it.

    Or: Sherlock needs to fake a relationship for a case. He doesn't ask John.
